Employee Testimonials

“I like the industry and the opportunity that I have here at Lannick. It’s a smaller company with tons of room for growth that otherwise would not be offered at one of the larger, national firms. It’s a fast-paced environment, where both individual and team performance are keys to success.”
- Leo Mastoras, Managing Director, Client Services for Pro Count Staffing Temporary Division

We believe in who we are and what we do. We believe that as a team and as individuals we will succeed and overcome any obstacles that may confront us.


The Lannick Candidate Commitment
We treat our candidates like people, not numbers. Many employers overlook qualified candidates due to the lack of time spent properly assessing their application, experience, skills and qualifications. At Lannick, we cultivate a relationship aimed at helping you build your career. We take a long-term approach to building successful relationships and successful careers.

Finance and Accounting
As one of the first recruitment firms to specialize in this industry in the GTA area, Lannick Finance & Accounting has been helping finance and accounting professionals develop rewarding careers since 1985 with some of Canada’s most successful companies. The addition of Pro Count Staffing years later ensured coverage of all roles and levels. Over our long history we’ve built an extensive network of client companies who recognize our expertise in finance and accounting. At the same time, we’ve developed a robust methodology for market and job research and assembled a team whose work experience and professional designations reflect your own. For you, this means access to many temporary, contract and permanent opportunities not advertised anywhere else. Just as important, it means working with a recruitment firm that speaks your language.

Lannick Technology connects high calibre information technology professionals with contract and permanent roles with Canada’s leading companies. Many of our Recruitment Associates hold IT certifications or have previously worked in technology roles. This means we have a thorough understanding of the industry and can better assist you in finding a career opportunity that is highly rewarding.

Temporary, Contract or Permanent?
There are various reasons why people decide to pursue a temporary, contract or permanent role. Whichever path you choose, rest assured that your Recruitment Associate will work to ensure you achieve your search objectives. Of course, you can also decide to take on contract work while we continue to search for your ideal permanent position. Either way, we know you’ll be pleased with the experience.

Why choose Lannick over other placement firms? Three words: The Lannick Advantage. Here’s how The Lannick Advantage translates to benefits for you.

Get quick access to qualified candidates.
We’ve been in the specialized recruitment business for more than 30 years and have built an extensive network of the best and brightest in the markets we serve. In fact, we have a dedicated Research Team that tracks thousands of candidates – all professionals in their chosen fields – throughout their careers so we know their availability and interest levels at any given time.

Get a better fit for your role.
To ensure we’re assessing the most suitable candidates for your role, we work with you to define a comprehensive job profile. Then our Recruitment team will canvass the market place including our proprietary network of candidates to recommend the most appropriate group of candidates to present to you. The seven-step Better Fit Search Methodology™ we follow allows us to guarantee our placements, which in turn allows you peace of mind and the greatest chance for success.

Rest assured you’ll never have to settle for second best.
To make sure you’re fully satisfied with our candidates, we provide two hiring options. One option is to interview and choose a contract or permanent candidate well in advance (“interview to hire”), and the other is to meet one of our pre-screened candidates the morning of an assignment to save on time when urgency is the priority (“direct hire”). Both options are backed by our Better Fit Guarantee™, which means if you are not satisfied, we will replace the candidate quickly with another candidate of your choice.

Enjoy exceptional and transparent service.
As a Lannick client, you’ll benefit from our unique Dedicated Service Model (DSM), designed to provide you with exceptional service and eliminate the potential conflict of interest that exists among most firms where one individual represents the interests of clients and candidates alike. With our DSM, your Lannick Client Associate will represent your interests from start to finish, our Research Associates will ensure that no part of the candidate market will be overlooked when filling your role and our team of Recruitment Associates will bring forward multiple candidates.

    Recruitment is not for everyone – Lannick is definitely a metrics driven environment. They make it clear to you at the very beginning, from the first intake phone call and throughout the entire interview process. Some people aren’t cut out for a KPI driven environment, and that’s okay! To succeed here you definitely need a work hard, play hard mentality.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lannick (Toronto, ON) in April 2016.


    I have 1.5 years of industrial recruitment experience and was contacted via LinkedIn for the recruiter role and setup an interview at the downtown office. After couple hours of interviews with almost the entire team they decide to send me to the North york office for an interview wth the IT staffing department. The north york office conducts another 2 interviews on different days with the director and manager I believe. Then, they come back and tell me "my experience is not significant for IT recruitment" . Wasn't this obvious in the first interview itself? Im sorry Lannick, Being 30 years in the recruitment field and unable to determine this simple detail is unbelievable! Anyway, so they come back to tell me they would like to consider me for a BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT ROLE? How does my profile even match this? At this point I am confused and they offer me a salary way below my current drawing. What a waste of time! AVOID AT ALL COST UNLESS YOU ARE A NEW GRAD AND WANT TO GET SUCKED INTO MAKING COLD CALLS AND WORKING FOR LOW WAGES
